Keto Update: Failing & Gaining

Failure is such a strong word. I fell completely off!!! It has been so hard getting back on track. I gave myself the excuse that my cardiologist wanted me to stop Keto.

I initially started keto back in February 2018 with the intentions of losing 20lbs and I had almost accomplished it! But then I gave it up through that Summer because I wanted… Continue reading Midnight Thoughts: Starting Keto, Cold Turkey!
